This is a very, very impressive package. Everything works as it should. The GPS receiver is very accurate and very easy to set up. The software is the most powerful and easy to use I have ever tested.
The only thorn in the side of this package is that Palm chose to use a Bluetooth GPS receiver which makes using a Bluetooth headset or car kit impossible. I tried the software with a hard wired GPS and was still able to use my Bluetooth car kit for phone calls and it worked great.
I would hope that in future planning, Palm will give the user an option for hard wired or Bluetooth use.
The bottom line is that if you want a Bluetooth GPS receiver and the absolute best software package for the Treo, and you are aware of the limitations of Bluetooth use - buy this package.
If you are a Bluetooth headset or Car kit user and you want to drive with GPS guidance - be forewarned - you will lose your headset/car kit connection if you connect to the GPS receiver.
- easy to use
- long battery life
- easy one handed operation of software
- Bluetooth connection on Treos allows for either GPS or Headset connection - not both
